Pros: not sure yet.
Cons: Poor button placement, they are in the back, and the power cable actually blocks one of them. Does not wake from sleep mode and causes video driver errors, windows cannot identify model, shows up as generic, no drivers available.
Other Thoughts: First off I have an Asus P8H67-M EVO v3.0, BIOS is fully updated, Intel HD Graphics 4000 drivers updated running Windows 7 x64 ultimate, 16gb ram. Former configuration before adding this monitor were, and AOC 2343, 23” monitor connected to the HDMI with a HDMI to DVI cable, DVI to DVI into a Hyundai 21” monitor. From day one this configuration worked perfectly other than having 2 different sized screens, but none the less, I never had any problems at all with video, games, VMWare, Photoshop and PRE Elements, nothing! The plan was to use the Hyundai as a TV monitor and replace it with the ASUS VN248H to compliment the AOC. Now I remove Hyundai and connect this Asus VN248H-P using the supplied DVI to HDMI cable in its place, boot up and the resolution on the VN248H is set at 800x600, the AOC is 1920x1080 like it was before. I go into windows screen resolution settings and it recommends changing the ASUS to 1920x1080, so I do this and both monitors go black…. I wait and nothing, now I have to reboot… no matter what I do it will not work. Now I go into the intel video settings and it allows me to make the changes, but the problems do not end there. Anytime I do any changes using Windows Screen resolution, like raising or lowering the monitors, the screens go black and will not recover, if I make the ASUS the main monitor, same thing. I tried to use HDMI out of my video to HDMI, same deal. So anyhow I decide I will only use the settings within the intel screen options and not touch windows settings….. still problems. When the screen goes into power saver mode and I move the mouse to wake them up, the AOC lights up right away, and the ASUS does nothing…. After a minute or 2 the AOC goes black, then they both light up and a balloon pops up letting me know the video has failed and recovered. If I am using VMware the screen goes black and NEVER recovers, I have to restart the VM. I never had ANY troubles until I installed this monitor, I have no idea how just a monitor could cause these issues so I plug in the Hyundai and all is normal again, so I know it’s not the computer!
Going into device manager my AOC shows up as AOC 2343, but the ASUS shows up as “generic PnP monitor”, I looked high and low for drivers, and there are none available. When in the Intel video settings the ASUS monitor is identified as “Digital Television ASUS VN248” I have tried using all the different plugs configurations and nothing changes, the same failures, and again, when going back to my Hyundai the problems go away. I tried everything I know to try, refresh rates, Intel video drivers…. I’m done trying knowing that the old2 monitor setup I had still works. It looks like I wasted my money on this monitor and I will not recommend this to anyone! I know this works for most people, but if it does not work with my system, who knows how many more are incompatible. There is nothing in the settings, I'm not sure if I should keep it as a TV or return it for refund?
This review is from: Sony 200W Stereo Receiver - STR-DH130
Pros: Low price,
Cons: None for how I use it.
Other Thoughts: Mine was rather banged up, the metal case has a big dent on the top left corner so the plastic faceplate / bezel is not snapped in all the way. The damage is OK with me since I am only using this in a work room with small speakers. I would rate the sound quality at a 3 out of 5 for the wattage, but it is sure worth the money I spent, and fits my needs well in a smaller room.
I would recommend this to a friend unless they wanted really good, big room sound.
